As always I appreciate your analysis and know that in a world where someone is trying to discern what system is optimized to perform all manner of high-stress rendering and mission critical workflows, the factors you mention are clearly relevant.

I also suspect that there are readers here who simple want to EDIT real world stuff, plenty of which is generated by legions of new generation MXF, AVCHD, ProRes and yes, h-264 spewing cameras - and for them, this kind of "real world" test is pretty relevant. The fact that an easily purchased laptop running equally accessible software can "play with the big boys"in the I NEED TO GET MY WORK DONE FAST! game is news enough.

Not perhaps at the total top of the game, I admit. If you're shooting as the above poster is, 6k Red Dragon files — then what you can even do that on a commercial laptop is surely interesting, but, i suspect, not exactly central to their decision making processes.

For the editor who just needs to get their day to day work done quickly and efficiently (like me!) it's STILL a revelation that my new laptop provided such a HUGE boost in productivity. Way beyond what I expected when I bought it to replace my aging old machine.

As always, your detailed analysis of the underlying technology is welcome and personally interesting. As always, I'm really glad you're here.
